Ohio Valley Goodwill Announces Program Closures in Response to COVID-19 and Governor DeWine’s Directives

In response to the orders provided by Ohio Governor Mike DeWine regarding preventing the spread of COVID-19, Ohio Valley Goodwill will be closing its day program and services for adults with disabilities with some exceptions. The Governor’s orders indicate that many of Goodwill’s programs are “Essential services” and can be offered to small groups of 10 or less. Goodwill’s Employment and Veterans services are also considered Essential Services and will continue to be provided. If you are interested in participating in Goodwill’s services during this time, please contact Lisa Schneider at (513) 771-4800, ext. 6372 for more information. For information about our Employment Services, please call Chelsea Combs at 771-4800, ext. 6313 and for our Veterans Services, please contact Susie Skeens at 771-4800, ext. 5121.

In addition, all retail stores, donation sites, Auto Auction, As Is Auction, and related business lines will be closed in compliance with the Governor’s orders through Monday, April 6th. We hope to reopen on Tuesday, April 7th depending on the Governor’s orders. 

As an agency who has been committed to serving people with disabilities for more than 100+ years, Ohio Valley Goodwill is committed to the health and safety of our program participants and staff team at all times.

We will keep you informed of the status of our programs and services as we are able in response to updates received by the Governor and the Ohio Department of Health. We will post updates to our website at www.cincinnatigoodwill.org/news.

Thank you for your understanding and support as we work together to try to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus. We wish you the very best in the difficult days to come.
